On Friday, November 10th First Class Community Credit Union sponsored a Veterans Day radiothon to raise funds for the American Legion of Iowa’s Veteran Service and Assistance Programs.

The Vets of Valor fundraiser was hosted by Prairie Meadows Racetrack & Casino and broadcasted by 93.3 KIOA from 6:00am to 6:00pm. First Class Community’s staff and board of directors answered phones during the fundraiser and took donations from callers and individuals who stopped by to show support.

“Veterans and their families have made so many sacrifices for us and our country. It is truly an honor for First Class Community Credit Union to participate in an event like this where we are able to show our appreciation and support for our veterans,” said Zac Pollock, CEO of First Class Community Credit Union.

This year’s event saw $107,925 in donations that will be used to help veterans in need of assistance right here in Iowa. This was the fourth annual Vets of Valor event and the second consecutive event where more than $100,000 in donations were received.
